PAW Cat of the Month: Greyson


Greyson is about 5 years old and is a grey and white affectionate male. He loves people and is very chill. He was a stray in the Prince George's County area, but now is looking for his forever home. We are not sure of his experience with other cats or dogs. 

Greyson is up to date on his vaccinations and tested negative for FIV/FELV. He will be neutered prior to being placed in his new home. To learn more about Greyson, please contact Heather at cat-coordinator@paw-rescue.org

Thank you for helping Greyson find his forever home!

How Maryland and Federal Employees Can Help PAW

Maryland Charity Campaign (MCC): is a workplace charitable giving program that offers State Employees and eligible Retirees the opportunity to contribute to charities using the convenience of payroll deduction. Currently, more than 800 charities participate in the campaign, including PAW.  If you are a MD State employee or eligible retiree and would like to donate to PAW through the MCC, please go to:  https://mcc.maryland.gov/. Thank you!

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): About 85% of PAW expenses this year will be for veterinary care and boarding for our rescue animals. Our funding is entirely dependent on individual bequests, donations at fundraising events, the website, and the Combined Federal Campaign. CFC is the workplace charitable donation vehicle for active and retired federal employees and contractors, and represents more than 22,000 charities. We receive about 20% of our income through CFC, a 50% decline over recent years. Donations to all CFC charities are down and this year's fundraising atmosphere will be particularly challenging. If we are to continue to rescue, heal, and place animals at our current pace, we need to raise significantly more CFC funds. If you are an active or retired federal employee and would like to donate through CFC, please be sure to speak with your agency CFC coordinator. You can also ask your CFC coordinator to get us an invitation to their charity fair!  CFC events occur primarily between early October and mid-November on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in helping at one of the fairs, please contact Martha at marthaoppenheim1@gmail.com. You do not need to be a federal employee or retiree to help at the fairs. We really appreciate your help!

235 Dogs & Cats Adopted in 2019!

Thank you to everyone that helped PAW last year continue our mission of rescuing homeless dogs and cats and finding them loving forever homes. We had a record 2019 - we adopted out 156 dogs and 79 cats! Thank you to each and every one of you that walked a dog, fostered a dog or cat, donated, helped at a show, etc. We couldn't do what we do without all of you!


The need for foster parents is ALWAYS dire. Have you ever thought about opening your home to a dog or cat who needs a temporary home? Now is the time to make that thought a reality. Do you know someone who would make a good foster parent? Put them in touch with PAW now. The more foster homes we have, the more animals we can rescue.

For information about what is involved in fostering, go to
https://paw-rescue.org/foster/ or contact Dave Campbell at dog-coordinator@paw-rescue.org or Heather Nawrocki at cat-coordinator@paw-rescue.org.

The six benefits of fostering (Adapted from: The Dogington Post; May 2017):

1. Fostering saves lives.
2. You have a hand in making the animal more “adoptable.” We learn so much about the animal from the foster.
3. You have the opportunity to change an animal’s future.
4. Fostering can be great for your family.
5. You become part of a wonderful community (PAW!).
6. You will make someone’s family complete.

Donations are Appreciated!
